NCAA’s winningest active coach Al Ogletree to retire

January 23, 1997

EDINBURG, Texas (AP) _ Texas Pan-American baseball coach Al Ogletree, the winningest active coach in Division I-A, said Thursday he’s retiring after this season.

Ogletree, whose career record is 1,187-689, will begin his 29th season coaching the Broncs on Jan. 31.

Reggie Tredaway, an assistant to Ogletree for 23 years, has been promoted to associate head coach. Tredaway, a former star player for Ogletree, also will take over Ogletree’s spot as third-base coach.

Ogletree, who turns 67 on Feb. 5, said he plans to continue as a part-time teacher in the health and kinesiology department, as he’s done since joining the school.

Ogletree became the active victory leader last July following the resignation of Texas coach Cliff Gustafson, who won a collegiate record 1,466 games in 29 seasons.
